Christmas at the in-laws, guilted into going because “it might be Grandma’s last Christmas”.
Indeed it was, just a couple weeks later. At least 2 of us caught COVID in the 3 days we all stayed in close quarters together. I’ll never know if that’s what took Grandma because the entire family is anti-vax COVID deniers. She was admittedly in terrible health already, even if COVID did take her, her chance of living another year was low.
I think at a casino that i took my mom to. I was masked, but i think i took my mask off to take a dump in the restroom.
Tables were very lax at requiring masks. Of 7 players, only 4 were masked.
My mom did not get COVID despite the 90 minute drive home. She is over 80.
My wife and kids have not yet tested positive for COVID, despite being in the same house for two weeks before I finally got early cold symptoms and tested positive.
Wedding. It was outdoor ceremony and cocktails, but then indoor for food and dancing. I could sense COVID was in the air that night, but I had already attended multiple weddings during Delta/Omicron and never caught it. I was invincible I thought. Nope, it was a super spreader.
I put unknown. In the 7 days prior to symptoms I had done the following unmasked-
-high intensity gym
-grocery and other big box stores
Plus being around my kids.
I put my family member. He got it first, then me. So while we were shopping at grocery store and attending outdoor church services, it was at his work where we knew it to be going around and people weren’t masking unless strictly required. At church we were outdoors, masked, and distanced. At the grocery store I didn’t get close to any one person for more than a minute—did self checkout.
As I mentioned elsewhere, I likely caught it working in a concession stand. N95 masked, but prolonged exposure to someone who tested positive 36 hrs later.
Traveled by car to join a family celebration at the beginning of July. 2 of 3 that flew to join tested positive within 2 days of returning. Others attending tested positive but asymptomatic. Luckily my 70-something aged mom was negative. All my immediate family did not catch. All family is vaccinated, older folks boosted too.
